Please be advised that there are currently inaccurate reports circulating on social media stating that car insurance is void if a motorist drives during a red weather alert. This is incorrect. Damage to vehicles caused by adverse weather is covered by comprehensive motor insurance policies. Third party fire and theft policies cover motorists for damage to other cars in the event of an accident, injury to other people, or damage to your car in the event of a fire or theft.
The advice for motorists is to heed the warnings in place from the authorities and avoid all non-essential travel.
